Jeanne and I talked about this on this morning's show, how CareerBuilder.com constructed their annual list of dumb reasons people would give for calling in sick or skipping work. Needless to say, they're pretty ridiculous.
When you are at work it is common courtesy to pick up after yourself, and also realize that you are sharing a space with many other people. Usually my fellow co-worker gals are very respectful, but I think a guy snuck in there today.
It's 3 pm on a beautiful Friday afternoon and, you're stuck at work staring out the window as the outside world beckons to you. Rather than plotting some elaborate story or faking an illness that your boss will see right through, why not let technology take care of your problem?
